In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:

• AlgoSec is unique in that it manages the entire security policy lifecycle to ensure ongoing, secure connectivity for your business applications.

• Through a single pane of glass, you can auto-discover application connectivity requirements, proactively analyze risk, rapidly plan and execute network security changes and securely decommission firewall rules - all with zero-touch and seamlessly orchestrated across your heterogeneous public or private cloud, and on-premise network environment.

• A key differentiator, not offered by AlgoSec’s competitors, is AlgoBot, the first intelligent chatbot for security management. AlgoBot automatically answers questions from users and assists with change requests via its intuitive self-service interface, from a chatroom or mobile app. This frees up resources, accelerates responses, and enhances the efficiency of security processes.

Brief Overview

Managing network security policies across on-premise firewalls and cloud security controls is a delicate balancing act. On the one hand, you need to reduce risk by minimizing the attack surface, on the other hand, you must enable productivity by provisioning connectivity for your critical business applications. However, network security policy management processes have always been complex, time-consuming, and riddled with errors. They don’t have to be.

The AlgoSec Network Security Policy Management Suite is an automation solution that provides end-to-end visibility of the network security infrastructure, as well as business applications and their connectivity flows. With AlgoSec you can automate time-consuming security policy changes with zero-touch, proactively assess risk and ensure continuous compliance. Quickly provision, change, migrate or decommission network connectivity for business applications to speed up delivery into production. AlgoSec manages application connectivity and network security policies throughout their lifecycle— eliminating guesswork, reducing errors, and saving time and money.
